IRIS III: THE EXHIBITION
March 26, 2017 at 9:00 AM - April 1, 2017 at 5:00 PM
As part of the launch of the 3rd edition of IRIS, Modern Art Oxford will be displaying a week-long mini exhibition of the original artworks published in the magazine, alongside the poetry and process which contributed towards the publication. As ever, our aim is to encourage a wider engagement with the works
One of the core tenets behind our original conception of IRIS was to encourage an encounter with the physical page and its contents. The exhibition gives readers an opportunity to encounter the works in an immediate setting and to experience the book outside of the page.
IRIS is a collaboration of original literature and visual art, including poetry, fiction and criticism. It aims to create a space for interdisciplinary artistic dialogue and to enact the interaction between creator and audience. Printed using letterpress and risograph, IRIS celebrates traditional techniques of book production whilst fostering contemporary and innovative work.
